Great Performer - Not for Everyone
**1TB Version** This generation, Samsung used 3-bit TLC flash instead of the 2-bit MLC used on the 970 Pro. This still results in superior IOPS, Read/Writes. I did three runs back to back for a quick torture test and the results are pretty close to what was advertised other than the IOPS. Those were...

An unexpected runner up
The Samsung 980 SSD is effectively an acknowledgement that we’re in a transitional period where not everyone has or needs a PCIe 4.0 M.2 SSD. The Samsung 980 Pro covered the high end of the M.2 SSD market, and now Samsung’s 980 SSD offers something a little more price-friendly by ditchin...

Samsung SSD 980 Review
Today Samsung released yet another client drive with the Samsung SSD 980. While the name can be a bit confusing as the company typically releases both a PRO and an EVO version of a drive and currently have a 980 PRO. The new 980, sans any follow-up name, is the company’s first DRAM-less client SSD. ...
Samsung SSD 980 Review
The new Samsung SSD 980 (nope, no "EVO" today folks) enters the field of internal solid-state drives with some pretty stiff goals to meet. Its older brother, the PCI Express 4.0-based Samsung SSD 980 Pro ($229 for 1TB), blew out our testing benchmarks across the board when we reviewed it back in Sep...

Big fail with 3-bit memory
So the promise of these has fallen short - can't have a true "Pro" if you skimp to 3-bit NAND from 2-bit. The previous generation is a better bet, without the price premium. Real world performance as well as lifetime are worse here. Very disappointing.

pretty good option for a laptop
I recently left a review for another nvme drive, the sk hynix p41. I said in it that that drive drained my battery in my new laptop alittle too fast for my liking. I took that drive out and switched it to this samsung 980 pro. I had mentioned in the p41 review that i thought the p41 was faster than ...

Samsung 980 Pro 1TB NVMe M.2 SSD Review
Samsung 980 Pro 1TB Today we are taking a look at the Samsung 980 Pro 1TB NVMe SSD. Much like our previous review of the Sabrent Rocket 4 Plus 1TB drive, this review is being done because when we looked at the Samsung 980 Pro in the past we tested the 500GB version of the drive, and since then 1TB d...
Probably best to avoid the ADATA XPG Gammix S50 Lite for your PS5 M2.SSD of choice.
This happened to me when I accidentally installed an SSD that was slightly bellow spec so I returned it and ordered the Samsung 980. I’m still waiting on my heatsink to arrive so I haven’t put it in yet but as soon as I took out that SDD I originally installed the noise stopped.
